RE: How soft shell eggs change my perspective towards poultry and farming?

in StemSocial10 days ago

We often think farming is all the glorified scenes we see in movies. We wake up with fresh air, a field of flowers, cattle, and chicken all over the place, and all is a good life. But it wasn't. It was a tough life and not even close to what we imagined. And, it is the reason why youth opt-out to stay away from it. Agriculture is unappealing and relatively a burden. Farmers work for long hours and seldom take some time off. That is why I hate when people mock farmers for their financial capacity, not knowing that they are more hardworking than the majority of us.

Dear @juecoree, I agree with you! You always seem to have strong affection and interest in the lower classes of society.
We have a strong tendency to ridicule the economic hardship and poverty of farmers. We seem to easily forget that they work hard every day to produce the most important food.

I think the Philippines can develop into a developed country if the Filipino farmers become richer than they are today.
I think the Filipino farmers should be richer than they are now, so the Filipino food self-sufficiency rate should increase!

Why do you think Filipino politicians are neglecting the poverty of Filipino farmers?

I always have.

I guess majority of us are programmed that way. I am just thankful that my parents will always remind me and my siblings that everyone plays an important role in our society (regardless of their financial capacity).

There are good laws enacted but poorly implemented for farmers and farming to be profitable. I resonate with you that Filipino farmers should be self-sufficient, but it easier said than done.

Majority of the politicians are concerned with power and the benefits they get. We can seldom see a true servant among their ranks. I think the reason of neglect of farmer's poverty boils down whether the politicians and their goals can benefit from it. If it won't, they will not prioritized.
